I'm going to a gun show in NOVA this weekend.

This is THE largest gun show in the entire state...1,000+ tables.

I just LOVE seeing so many gun owners in liberal Northern Virginia, about 20 miles outside of Dysfunctional City (DC). Also gives me a chance to shove some $$$ in the collection plates of a few organizations and to chat with these guys.

Hope I receive my new NRA jacket within the next couple of days to wear there.

I'm not in the market for anything specific, but that's what worries me. It seems that when I'm looking for something specific, I've got a focus. It's when I'm NOT looking for something specific that EVERYTHING looks good. And I have my VA CCW, so NO LIMIT on the number of guns I can buy in a given day/purchase.

Satan, get thee behind me.
MasterCard, what looks good to you, my friend?

So, since you aren't looking for anything in paticular be sure to tell us all what you bought. Never fails, "I'm just going to go look around" and you need to rent a small U-Haul to bring your treasures home. Have a great time. And lastly but not least TRY TO BEHAVE YOURSELF!

I know I'll at least be buying some homemade jerky (why this is sold at a gun show is beyond me).

My favorite vendors are a husband & wife who are retired & live out west somewhere. They sell those cheap zippered gun pouches, travelling nationwide from show to show in their Winnebago.

I always spend about 1/2 hour chatting with them, just regular nice folks.

What a life!

BTW--I've worked out state rights group's booth a shows between DC and Richmond (a 100 mile range). In Richmond, there are always 3-4 guys escorted out in handcuffs for trying to buy guns WITH A FELONY RECORD!!! Un-freakin-believable. Never see that in Northern Va.

I love homemade jerky. My grandpa lives in the middle of nowhere, Missouri and kills a few deer each year. He then turns it into jerky and sends some to family. I get like, 5 pounds a couple times a year. It's a nice treat.

Sounds delicious, Cake.

My brother lives about 20 minutes away. He hunts on a friends farm, where they plant corn for the deer.

I've had 'gamey' venison before, I swear that their diet makes all the difference. The corn fed stuff is great.

I love jerky. My wife makes it very well.

You are spot on about what deer eat effecting the taste. I really did not care that much for venison as a kid. But we use to hunt in pine forests of upstate New York or on my uncles land in Pennsylvania. The deer from the pine forests tasted weird, very gamey. The deer that fed in my uncle's fields was much nicer. Deer in my area are pretty much grass fed and delicious. Through one of those tender loins on a grill with some nice mesquite wood and a lemon butter glaze....Oh man, I made myself hungry.....there's some back strap left in the fridge......

The first venison I ever had as a kid what taken by my brother in law in New Jersey (although I had rabbit and pheasant before). I recall my sister trying all the homespun tactics to cut the taste: soak in vinegar, use lots of tomatoes, badically anything with a high acid content...it still tasted like deer, not venison, if you know what I mean.

My brother field dresses the deer, then takes it to a butcher to be cut into steaks, ground for chili, spiced & stuffed into casings, etc. He & I both like to cook, even his three young kids will eat it and ask for more.
